Back from bank crusades, the Chancellor has acknowledged rising poverty by reintroducing groats in conjunction with a reduced tax rate for peasantry. Tax relief for self employed vassals and VAT extended to cover fiefdoms make up a cartload of economic revitalisation measures. Wealthy landowners, cottagers and master builders will be liable for tithes when a revised land inclosures charter come into force as part of Town and Country Planning revisions. A new edition of the unpopular Poll Tax and a Window Tax are under serious consideration, despite violent revolts in the past. Breaking down Britain's inflated currency denominations and a return to feudalism is being seen as a bid by the the government and the Bank of England to 'connect with commoners at their level' and return to Small Society policies.
Commenting on the growing numbers of poor and dispossessed people who will be reclassified as peasants for income tax, Mr Osborne said today "we're always trying to help those most in need but the tax system we inherited from Labour was positively medieval, we could be revising it until Domesday."
